Despite speculation -- again -- that comedian D.L. Hughley would get the boot on last night's "Dancing With The Stars" results episode, he was once again safe from elimination as Wynonna Judd, instead, was sent home. Hughley wasn't safe from the judges' harsh words, however; backstage, he called them "bullies," noting that being on the show is "not fun."
Hughley expressed frustration that, during the critiques of performance, the dancers' microphones aren't on, which keeps them from responding to the sometimes-cruel words.
"I don't want to be a verbal punching bag," Hughley told E! Online.
Hughley wasn't the only one who's been on the wrong end of the judges lately -- during Monday night's episode, the panel of three had some choice words for Judd, who was ultimately eliminated.
"It had no rhythm, there was no hip action, you kept going wrong," Len Goodman lamented.
But the results show wasn't all snark and saying goodbye -- Demi Lovato played her hit single "Heart Attack," and Huey Lewis & the News performed a high-energy rendition of "The Heart of Rock 'n Roll."
